Hello there Google Pixel users! BestCaseEver.com is back again with another article showing what are the best cases for Google Pixel 3. These are probably the best cases you can find on amazon just under $40. Look through the items and select what you like…

1. Spigen Thin Fit Designed for Google Pixel 3 XL Case (2018) – Black

The first in the list is this Thin Fit case designed by Spigen. It is slim and very light in weight. The case is made from very soft and smooth PC material that is also scratch resistant. In order to provide a good grip, we can see a smooth texture design made in the back of the case (but I don’t think that it works as expected). The case has minimal raised edges in front to protect your precious Google Pixel 3 screen from possible scratches. I must say that this case doesn’t add any bulk to your phone after the installation. It will fit perfectly to your phone and specially the keys. Cutouts are very precise and crisp. The case will not attract any fingerprints on its back (the rear design aids it). But keep in mind that this is not an anti-drop protective case, just a cover and a good scratch preventer. The top and the bottom are wide open making the case less protective but still worth buying.

Pros,

  • Thin and light
  • Raised edges (minimal)
  • No bulk
  • Scratch resistant
  • Not fingerprint attractive
  • Perfect cutouts
  • Supports wireless charging (of course it is very thin)

Cons,

  • Little bit slippery (even with the rear design)
  • Not much protection (can’t expect more for just $11)

2. Spigen Rugged Armor Designed for Google Pixel 3 XL Case (2018) – Black

This Rugged Armor case from Spigen provides something significant when comparing to the previous Thin Fit I explained ($1 price difference). Rugged Armor is made from hard TPU and strong Carbon Fiber materials. It has a spider web pattern from the inside to absorb low level shocks. The case is little bit flexible and has more raised edges than the Thin Fit. The cutouts are same like the previous one, accurate and crispy. The rear of the case has some soft feeling on it making it good in hand and non-slippery. The case will add no bulk to your Google Pixel 3 phone just like the Thin Fit. And it will not attract any kind of fingerprints or other oily marks. Also provides a good protection just for 12$.

Pros,

  • Thin and light
  • Considerably raised edges
  • No bulk
  • Not fingerprint attractive
  • Perfect cutouts
  • Supports wireless charging
  • Not slippery

Cons,

  • Nothing bad

3. Spigen Liquid Crystal Designed for Google Pixel 3 XL Case (2018) – Crystal Clear

This transparent and flexible Liquid Crystal case from Spigen is a good choice if you want to show off your Google Pixel 3. The flexibility of the case makes it more easy to install. You know that almost every transparent case will turn into yellow with the time and this will do it too. And also fingerprint attraction is another inherited ‘bad’ quality of these transparent cases. But this Liquid Crystal will not attract lots of fingerprints (only a little). The case is reinforced from buttons and corners. It is thin and very light. Since the case is made from anti-slip TPU that feels kind of a jelly material to your hands. It will not slip unless your hands are sweaty. This will easily support the wireless charging and will fit right onto your pocket.

Pros,

  • Transparent
  • Thin and light
  • Flexible
  • Precise and reinforced buttons – cutouts
  • Not slippery
  • Not bulky
  • Supports wireless charging

Cons,

  • Will turn yellow
  • Little bit fingerprint attractive

4. Spigen Ultra Hybrid S Designed for Google Pixel 3 XL Case (2018) – Crystal Clear

Actually this Ultra Hybrid S case is very much like the previous Liquid Crystal case except this is hard and not flexible. The good thing in this case is this has a built-in kickstand. It works just perfect and has no accidental fall offs (the kickstand will cover the ‘G’ logo in the phone). This Ultra Hybrid S is more reinforced and drop protective than the Liquid Crystal. And this has raised edges and good cutouts as usual. The rear of the case loves to attract fingerprints. Since the case is very thin it will support wireless charging without no worries. As every transparent case do, this will eventually turn into yellow, from corners. I almost forgot to say that this case is firstly stickered on both sides to protect the case from any possible damages. You will have to wage a small war to remove those annoying stickers.

Pros,

  • Transparent
  • Hard and light
  • Kickstand
  • Reinforced cutouts and corners
  • Drop protected
  • Supports wireless charging

Cons,

  • Will turn yellow
  • Fingerprint attractive

5. Spigen Neo Hybrid Designed for Google Pixel 3 XL Case (2018)

This Neo Hybrid case is very attractive and may be the best Spigen case for this price. The case is made from two separate parts (rear and the frame with camera cutout). The feel of the case is very soft and smooth. It provides a very good grip to the user’s hand. This case has well raised edges for screen protection and textured back to repel the fingerprints. The case is drop protected with the Air Cushion Technology (shock absorbing web pattern inside – reinforced corners). You can choose a preferred case between Gunmetal, Burgundy and Mint colors. The case will support wireless charging without any hesitations.

Pros,

  • Drop protected
  • Good grip
  • Soft and smooth
  • Raised edges
  • Supports wireless charging

Cons,

  • Nothing bad

6. Spigen Tough Armor Designed for Google Pixel 3 XL Case (2018) – Black

The Tough Armor case is the last Spigen case in this list. It is way more drop protected than any of those cases I just described. Similar to the Neo Hybrid, this is made from two separate parts for maximum protection (heavily reinforced corners and web pattern for shock absorption). The rear has no textures on it but it doesn’t attract any kind of fingerprints. The case is not flexible because of the hard shell part on the back. Tough Armor has well finished cutouts and maximum raised edges for screen protection. In addition to all those details, this Tough Armor has a built-in kickstand. The kickstand is simple yet effective and locks well with the tick sound after the usage. Even the case is not very much thin it adds very little bulk to the phone and supports wireless charging as well.

Pros,

  • Drop protected
  • Maximum raised edges
  • Precise cutouts
  • Kickstand
  • Supports wireless charging

Cons,

  • Adds a very little bulk (not a big problem though)

7. Google Pixel 3 XL Case, VRS Design [Transparent] Clear Heavy Duty Protection [Crystal Chrome] Anti-Yellowing Acryl Back TPU Bumper for Google Pixel 3 XL (2018)

From VRS, this Crystal Chrome case is a fine looking, transparent case with a silver stripe on its back. The case is said to be an Anti-Yellowing case but I don’t know whether it is true or false. The case is heavily scratch resistant and well reinforced from corners. Crystal Chrome case is also bit flexible and light in weight. Even the case is scratch resistant I guess that it will attract some of your fingerprints (but not much). The case has well raised edges to protect your screen. Do not expect a big drop protection from this case because only the corners are reinforced.  The case won’t provide a good grip to wet/sweaty hands.

Pros,

  • Transparent
  • Anti-yellowing
  • Scratch resistant
  • Flexible and light
  • Raised edges

Cons,

  • Poor grip
  • Fingerprint attractive (only a bit)

8. Google Pixel 3 XL Case, VRS Design [Gray] Slim Full Body Protective [Single fit] Ultra Thin for Google Pixel 3 XL (2018)

Single Fit case from VRS is a good choice for those who doesn’t choose transparent cases as their choice. This Single Fit case has a textured back for prevent attracting fingerprints and any kind of scratches. The case feels kind of a rubber material and it makes a good grip in your hand too. The case will fit tightly to your Google Pixel 3 XL and it will give the phone a considerable protection from low level drops. All the buttons and cutouts are just fine. The case is also flexible too making it more easy to install and uninstall when needed. In the back of the case there is a small red stripe and it adds more style to the case.  The phone will support the wireless charging even with the case is on.

Pros,

  • Textured back

9. Google Pixel 3 XL Case, Poetic Guardian [Scratch Resistant Back] Full-Body Rugged Clear Hybrid Bumper Case with Built-in-Screen Protector for Google Pixel 3 XL Blue

This Poetic Guardian is a way more protected than every case I have mentioned above. It has a built-in screen protector, PC back, TPU lining and reinforced bumpers. Simply, the case provides a 360-degree protection to your Google Pixel 3 XL. The screen protector is made from PC (Polycarbonate) too. But it doesn’t affect the screen sensitivity. The back is made from the same material but it is bit harder than the screen protector. It will attract no fingerprints and it won’t turn into yellow with the time. In addition to the protection from the screen protector, the case has maximum raised edges to provide heavier protection to the screen. The best thing is, if you don’t like the built-in screen protector, you can remove it from the TPU frame. Everything is good except the case adds bit bulk to the phone (not too much but some may dislike it). The Poetic Guardian comes in black, blue, green and pink colors (green one is bit odd though).

Pros,

  • Built-in screen protector
  • Scratch and fingerprint resistant
  • Maximum raised edges
  • Drop protection
  • Supports wireless charging

Cons,

  • Bit bulky (that’s all)

10. Google Pixel 3 XL Kickstand Rugged Case, Poetic Revolution [360 Degree Protection] Full-Body Rugged Heavy Duty Case with [Built-in-Screen Protector] for Google Pixel 3 XL Black

Just imagine the Poetic Guardian case with complex design and a built-in kickstand. Wham! It is the Poetic Revolution. The case is heavily protected from all sides. It has a built-in kickstand and a built-in screen protector. The design of the back of the case it bit unnecessary and also makes the case bulky. Every cutout is covered from a dust flap. The power button is actually bit hard to press, touching it will not be enough. Since the case is roughly built, it will not easily slip from your hands. The transparent back won’t turn into yellow with the time because the corners are well enforced. When talking about the built-in kickstand, it is the most annoying thing in the case. You will have to struggle with it to get it open and close. The case will provide a maximum protection but will haunt your dreams with that kickstand.

Pros,

  • Built-in screen protector
  • Built-in kickstand (but why?)
  • Scratch and fingerprint resistant
  • Maximum raised edges
  • Drop protection
  • Supports wireless charging

Cons,

  • Problems with power button
  • Lots of problems with the kickstand

11. Speck Products Compatible Phone Case for Google Pixel 3, Presidio Grip Case, Black/Black

The final and the most expensive case in this list is the Speck case. It is simple looking but 10ft drop protection certified case with an unbelievable grip in its back. The case has good amount of raised edges to protect the Pixel 3’s screen. All cutouts and buttons are just fine. The case is thin and light, doesn’t add any bulk to the phone too. Not fingerprint attractive and it is scratch resistant. Nothing special for 40$.

Pros,

  • 10ft drop protected
  • Great grip
  • Supports wireless charging
  • Raised edges

Scratch resistant

Cons,

  • Expensive (yes, it is)
